Arbeitsmuster

by alien productions

An installation, a live-event and a radio-art-work at the former "Eybl"-weaving mill - now called "Factory" in Krems-Stein, A. The history and the stories about the progress of technology - starting with the Jacquard-loom - and about its effect on the daily working environment of people.

A video and 5.1 multichannel audio video system employing 8 Kling & Freitag C106, Community Subs and Crown amping was designed to emulate the intense acoustic and visual dimension of the mechanical looms which were formerly situated in this specific space. Six interviews with women who worked at the factory were presented on TV sets, creating intimate spaces. Every once in a while the looped multichannel system would drown out the interviews, creating an atmosphere which must have been similar to the working environment of these women.
